Ingredients

  • 1 pound frozen green beans
  • 8 oz white button mushrooms (cleaned and sliced)
  • ¾ cup raw cashews (soaked in boiling water for 10 minutes)
  • 2 tablespoons vegan butter
  • 1 onion ( or large shallot - diced)
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1.5 vegetable bouillon cubes
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 bag fried onions
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees
  • Soak cashews in boiled water for 10 minutes. Drain
    ¾ cup raw cashews
  • In a high-speed blender add the cashews, bouillon cubes, garlic & onion powder, nutritional yeast and 2 cups of water. Blend on high until smooth. 1-2 minutes. It will seem too thin, but this will thicken when heated.
    ¾ cup raw cashews, 1.5 vegetable bouillon cubes, 2 cups water, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • Heat a sauté pan on medium heat and melt the vegan butter. Sauté the onions until lightly browned. Add the mushrooms, garlic, soy sauce, thyme and black pepper and cook until mushrooms are slightly browned - about 5-8 minutes.
    8 oz white button mushrooms, 2 tablespoons vegan butter, 1 onion, 3 cloves garlic, 1 tsp thyme, 1 tsp soy sauce, ½ tsp black pepper
  • Add the blended cashew cream base and turn heat to medium low. Stir on medium low heat until soup starts to thicken slightly. Don't thicken it all the way because it will thicken in the oven. Turn the heat off once thickened. Taste and add salt if needed.
    Salt to taste
  • In your casserole dish, add the green beans and cream of mushroom soup. Stir in a handful of fried onions
    1 pound frozen green beans
  • Bake in oven for 15-20 minutes. Until you see the casserole thickening up and bubbling. Take out of oven and cover the top with fried onions. Place back in oven for 5 minutes.
  • Let it set for 5 minutes and serve

Notes

If you're allergic to cashews, you can also use raw sunflower seeds or 1 cup of silken tofu. 
If you're gluten free, find a gluten free soy sauce and gluten free fried onions and gluten free vegetable bouillon cubes. 
The cashew cream base will seem a bit watery when you first blend it. Don’t worry. Cashews thicken a dish up the longer they’re heated.
 
When cleaning the mushrooms, use a damp paper towel to wipe any dirt off. Running the mushrooms under water tends to make them soggy.
If you don't like mushrooms, feel free to leave them out of this recipe
